Physical Description
3 photographs : b&w ; 13 x 20 cm or smaller
Scope and Content
Three black and white photographs used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published May 19, 1954 with captions:
"Sale of the Talbot Estates to F.I. Ker, of Hamilton, by Milton Berry, of Allen Park, Mich., has created widespread interest. Above is a picture of the old home of Colonel Thomas Talbot, founder of the Settlement that bears his name, as it looks today. It is surrounded by towering trees, well-kept flowerbeds and soft green grass with blue sky and billowing white clouds hanging high overhead. The long rambling structure with its wide front verandah is typical of early colonial styles in Canada. " (1a)
"A truly marvelous view to the east along the Lake Erie shoreline can be had from the Heights in front of Colonel Thomas Talbot's old home. The camera eye is looking easterly across the mouth of the Port Talbot harbor where the mill and other buildings were destroyed by raiding parties during the war of 1812. The Estates cover 672 acres, principally rolling land and wooded areas, but there is a splendid harbor at the mouth of Talbot Creek, where, it is said, commercial fishing may be resumed. Brock's army camped at this beach, August 10, 1812, on its way to capture Detroit and Hull's army." (1b)
"From a point high on a bluff north of the original Talbot road and at the easterly end of the Talbot Estate, one can look up towards the mouth of Talbot Creek, past the harbor mouth of Port Talbot and out over the quiet waters of Lake Erie, a stillness often broken by raiding parties from American shores which harassed the early settlers under Col. Talbot." (1c)
